Capture

Why do they call it the Golden Age of comics? There were only three real big shot characters that anyone cared about. You got Superman, Captain Marvel, and Batman — what more was there? Well…actually there were quite a number of them. True, they may not have been as successful as Superman, but they were definitely hits. And like Superman and Batman, they belonged to Harry Donenfeld.

HELLLLOOO MIDTOWN BLOG-OMANIAC! Raph here, and I’m going to talk about something that escapes people’s attention sometimes, sci-fi comics!

I love science fiction, and I think people may forget that superhero comics are science fiction comics. Superman is an alien, Batman and Iron Man have expensive gadgets, and the X-Men are genetically enhanced. There’s a certain magic and mythology to superheroes, but there is also a rational and scientific explanation for most of what goes on in comics (I still don’t know where Beppo the Super Monkey comes from). So to celebrate, here are 5 sci-fi comics you should be reading!

Welcome to the penultimate installment of C.C. Banana’s adventures at the 2011 New York Comic Con! Today the Banana (in the guise of Wolverine) takes on the smokin’ hot David Finch. As with his earlier interviews with artists Cully Hamner and Geof Darrow, it starts off serious but then takes a few unexpected turns!
